About Simona B.

San Diego, CA

I was born and raise in Italy, moved to the US few years ago.
I have been an Italian teacher for many years.
I can teach you from the basic to an advanced level

About Simona
I was born and raised in Italy. When I moved to the States in 2005, I barely spoke English.
That's why I decided to start teaching Italian. I know how difficult it is to go to a foreign country and not be able to buy something as simple as bread.

I will send you links, we will read together, watch videos, talk to each other. No need to buy any book with me, I will send you everything.

Are you ready to learn? Because I am happy to teach you.

Our high school son was studying a semester in Italy and knew no Italian. We hired Valentina after reading the great reviews and were more than pleased. She was flexible and accommodating to a very tight schedule and our son learned a lot from her. She sprinkled in some cultural and historical lessons on Italy but primarily language. Valentina is high energy, organized and a great teacher. High marks for punctuality, personality and teaching! She even offered to help him once in Italy which we may explore if needed. Thanks Valentina! A wonderful experience.

First lesson was good, although we had some technical difficulties using Skype -- probably my fault not Valentina's -- and ended up speaking by phone. Once we get that worked out, I expect to improve my conversational Italian, with special emphasis on conjugating verbs. So wonderful to speak with someone whose first language is Italian.

Pasta. Pizza. Spaghetti. As Americans, we're pretty familiar with Italian food. But do any of us know the language? Do you know the difference between when you should say "bravo" or "brava" in a concert? Whether you need help for an exam, or are about to study abroad, I'll help you learn Italian and improve your pronunciation so that you're ready to go!

I'm a first-generation Italian American from Brooklyn, NY. Growing up we would always have Sunday lunch at my Nonna's house and I took every opportunity I could to learn more about my family's culture and language. I'm passionate about Italian, and whether you are learning to prepare for an upcoming trip, for a specific event, or just for fun, I am here to help you reach your goals.

I teach cellists of all ages and abilities and tailor the lesson to the individual. Lessons include standard repertoire, and if requested, non-traditional styles as well. I have experience with solo repertoire, orchestra, chamber music, and folk music, and can help you develop your ear and even sing while playing. I have Suzuki certification and also focus on postural alignment (I have a Pilates teaching certification). I have traveled and performed extensively throughout North America, Europe, and Australia, and can help you perform well, have great stage presence, and deal with nerves and stage fright.

About Luisa M.

Miami Beach, FL

I am fully Italian and grew up here in Miami so I speak English and Spanish fluently as well. I can give lessons from English and from Spanish to Italian.

About Luisa
Hi! I am a singer/songwriter and actress.

I am graduating from Berklee College of Music, after studying at the Frost School of Music at the University of Miami for 3 years (I majored in Music Business with a minor in song writing).

I just moved back to Miami from living in Los Angeles for 2 years to write and record my EP. During my time in LA, I also furthered my training in acting for film and songwriting. I also shadowed videographers in LA and learned how to film and edit videos, which is why I opened a vlog channel to support my music.

I have been performing ever since I was a child. Some of my most important performances include: performing duets with Phil Collins both in Miami and in Switzerland, singing the National Anthem at the Heat Quarterfinals in 2013, being on THE VOICE in Italy, performing my original songs at a Phil C
ollins foundation in Paris, being the opening act for the United Nation's International Year of Youth in New York City, and performing the National Anthem at the Miami Open.

I speak and sing in 3 languages - English, Spanish, and Italian. I am originally from Rome, Italy.

I am completely aware of all musical genres, and especially what is current at the moment. I encourage students to bring in whatever music they feel is best for them and also challenging. Being a songwriter, I persuade students to bring in their own songs (if they write) so that we can work on the songs and most importantly, performing them. My main goal is that students become great performers, while primarily having mastered their technique for their vocal health and longevity.

McAllen, TX

I started teaching Italian in 1985, in McAllen, Texas, as a private tutor. I again kept tutoring Italian, this time for freshmen college students in Sugar Land, Texas in 2015. I am an Italian native speaker, and at the present time I am writing short stories in Italian.

About Robert
My name is Robert M. I have a Spanish Teaching Degree from The Netherlands and I started teaching since 1973. I also have an Associate Degree in Applied Arts in Advertising Design from the Art Institute of Houston. I combine art with any language to teach children up to 2nd grade to make it fun. For any other student, I use my innovative method without books, some sites in the net and we immediately start speaking the language the student wants to learn. But I still have the best books on demand if needed. I customize my lessons to the needs of my students and I am available 24/7 for any questions to make it as easy as possible for my students, no matter their age. I make learning fun and interesting for all my students because I love what I am doing!

I have been taking lessons from Robert for about 6 months and it has been a great experience. Robert takes a very individualized approach and works incredibly hard both during and between lessons to make the lessons relevant to where I am both in terms of the level of content and making the topics covered interesting. It is also obvious that Robert is - at the end of it all - a really good person who is enjoyable to spend time with while learning about both language and culture.

Ciao a tutti,

Prima di tutto vorrei presentarmi. Mi chiamo Galileo e sono italiano. Sono cresciuto a Firenze e poi ho iniziato a spostarmi per motivi di studio e lavoro. Ho vissuto in Spagna, Francia, Australia, Germania e ad Agosto inizio l'MBA in US.
Le mie lezioni sono uniche per diverse ragioni.
Intanto Firenze è il luogo in cui la lingua italiana ha avuto origine e quindi chi meglio di me la può insegnare?
Le mie lezioni saranno un mix di conversazioni, grammatica e divertimento.
Dato che sono specializzato in Business, se siete interessati a un corso più
Quando ero piccolo la mia famiglia era una "hosting family" degli studenti americani che decidevano di passare lo "studying abroad" a Firenze. Quindi ho già avuto modo di aiutarli con la lingua e so quale è il miglior approccio con studenti anglossassoni.

I am working in Business and I already graduated from my Bachelor and I'm currently doing my MBA here in the States. I'm Italian and I would love to teach my language abroad since I love to be an italian ambassador abroad.
I have done this second job since I started moving around for study and work.
I want to focus my classes on discovering not only the language but also the culture. I would love to teach you the language while doing super fun activities such as cooking together italian dishes. I'm also a hard-worker and I want to see improvements.
My family was hosting american students who were carrying out their studying abroad program in Florence when i was younger and so I'm used to teach italian to americans. It is actually super fun also for me!!
I teach to students of all different ages and experience levels.
